If your job requires you to visit or work on construction sites, you are
already aware of the wide variety of mishaps and injuries that are possible.
According to the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (a division
of the United States Department of Labor), there are 4 primary types of
construction site accidents, including:
Slips, trips and falls: Construction workers may fall from ground-level surfaces, ladders, scaffolding,
roofs, upper-level floors, and virtually any other surface on a construction
site. These can occur due to slippery surfaces, unkempt walkways, unstable
support, inadequate gear, etc.
Struck-by accidents: Many construction workers each year are injured when struck by falling
objects, heavy machinery, and other large, moving parts on site.
Caught-between accidents: These occur when workers get stuck in trenches or in between pieces of
machinery and other hard surfaces.
Electrocution: Where there are hanging powerlines, unsecured electrical wiring, and portable
electric tools, opportunities for injury abound, and construction workers
are at risk, even when they are not directly handling wires or electric-powered tools.
